the president dispatched his vice president for a not so successful joe biden fireside chat made famous by fdr. not so successful because vice president biden undercut it with his own call for shotguns and more modest magazines. >> a shotgun will keep you a lot safer. a double barrel shotgun than an assault weapon in someone's hands. even when he does know how to use it, it's harder to use an assault weapon as it is a shotgun i am less concerned about what you call an assault weapon. lou: president obama hoping that his number two does better tomorrow when joe biden launches a campaign style road trip to promote gun control. his first stop is virginia, whose electorate is pro-gun. this is now coming to be known as the obama great gun grab. fox news national security analyst k.t. mcfarland, former state department director, will be here to discuss john kerry's appointment to the secretary of state and what he means to obama foreign policy. we will be talking to a man who put the fate of the keystone pipeline and the fate of the president's hands. we have dave heineman with his approval to give
out on gay marriage and only did because joe biden forced his hand. the same thing with gun control. newtown changes the landscape just like 9/11 changed the landscape. i wonder if the president didn't do two things that will cost him nothing, appeased his base knowing he has to compromise move moving forward and put the republicans now on guns and gay marriage and climate change in a position where they will apologioppose it, may win and will look older and more out of touch with younger voters. >> a speech outside washington all this appeal tom coming together and did it at the white house we are going to do this if you want to do this. i thought he was reaching out to american voters and saying, here's my agenda but i need you to come with me and make this happen. i thought in that respect it was an intensely political speech, you're right. there was none of the red states, blue states, purple state of 2009. there was much more of the ideal and he had even said he would give clean water to african countries, that was a change the world speech. this was far more practical, far mor
gun control is now a white house campaign-style effort and vice president joe biden held a social media town hall, a google hangout to rally support. >> make your voices heard. this outfit, this town listens when people rise up and speak. >> reporter: the white house and feinstein know their biggest hurdle is convincing fellow democrats from gun right states to support gun control. >> the message to democrats is, see what your silence does? there will be more of these. >> reporter: no surprise, wolf, saying that they don't like this proposed ban. feinstein is, once again, focused on curtailing the constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing the mental health system. we are confident congress will deny the wrong-headed approach. >> it's not just republicans who are going to be opposed to what senator feinstein is proposing. a whole lot of democrats are going to be nervous about it as well. >> reporter: precisely. that's what senator feinstein was saying there in the piece, that her message to those fellow democrats, which they really are her first target, if you will, i

, how much security has changed in the white house over the last few years. >> there's dr. joe biden, the vice president's wife, who we know, very active in helping the military families coming back. >> also an educator. vice president biden, sworn in yesterday, as well. 8:15 yesterday morning at the naval observatory. sworn in by supreme court justice sonia sotomayer. we go back to the capitol right now. guests continue to file into the steps. >> can we do a split screen? i'm going to ask our director if we can do that. i want to see the crowd four years ago, as the president looked out. and i want to see the crowd today and compare them. it looks as if it stretched the entire 2.2 miles. >> there's 2009. >> pretty big. >> it does look pretty packed. of course, it will be a smaller crowd than four years ago. that was a moment in history that cannot be replicated. the flag is waving on the mall, as president obama prepares to come down to the capitol. >> let's talk a little about the president's speech because we do know he has been working on it since december. as they emerge. the fi
, he is, he and joe biden, those only two offices everybody votes for. and he has won. he got over 50%. so he will make his case. i think what is different, what is significantly different, there will be confrontation but i think the first time you're seeing the president move hess campaign organization, we just saw this in the last few days, move it into advocacy on the issues for his agenda during the second term. that's unprecedented. no president's ever been able it do that. and this time it is not with some rinky-dink campaign organization that we've seen in the past. this is the biggest campaign organization ever seen in the united states. 28, 30 million people. those people making the case to their members of congress regardless of party, whether the member is democrat or republican. i think could change the way we look at a lame duck second term presidency because of the power of that grassroots organization. bill: wow! that's a big statement, joe. back to the initial question though. >> sure. bill: blount make as heavy charge though. are there democrats in congress who agree
biden is also talking about maybe running. >> reporter: that's right and, you know, joe biden isn't sitting right next to the president in that interview. i don't think president obama has ever done an interview sitting next to anybody but his wife. so you bet there's a lot of talk about that and we'll talk to our powerhouse roundtable about that. >> you heard hillary clinton say that this is a surprise, who would have thought four years ago they would be sitting together and being so close. very interesting. >>> also this week hearings, confirmation hearings for the president's defense choice, defense secretary choice, chuck hagel begin. at times this seemed to vary. what are the odds this is actually going to go through? >> reporter: i think the chances are very good it'll go through. he's had a series of meetings includes with senator mccain trying to work out differences, trying to basically say what they want to hear, i think, and explain his positions further, they had some controversy over israel, over iran. we'll ask senator mccain about that this morning and whether he wo

of the gun lobby. vice-president joe biden dispatched to virginia today where he went to the virginia tech campus to try to rally support for the administration's proposals. perhaps more significant, chicago's mayor, former chief of staff to president obama, rahm emanuel is now trying to pressure private banks into not doing business with gun manufacturers. he wants them to cut off credit lines to firearm companies that don't get on board with president obama's gun control measures. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor, on power play.com. let's start with mayor emanuel. wow, what right does he, as a public official, he's not a private citizen, but as a public official try to go in and strong arm private banks into not doing business with law-abiding american companies with whose agenda mr. emanuel just happens to disagree? >> well, look, from the point of view of those folks who are interested in pushing a gun ban, what wouldn't you do to save a life, if guns are the cause of the problem and are killing people, what wouldn't you do to save a life? and if that includes arm twistin

. the president promised that in the first term. we didn't see so much of it. you can see mrs. joe biden, dr. joe biden about to come onto the inaugural platform. but he also talked about getting the public engaged, david plouffe did, and i think that will be an important part of the message here. i feel the president means the inside game just sitting down with john mccain and john boehner doesn't work so well on these issues. i think he will make aning a aggressive effort to engage the public. he has taken his campaign organization, obama for america, and turned it into an advocacy group called, organizing for action. i think part of the effort is going to be mobilize public support for his agenda. shepard: it's my understanding the vice president will be walking, there is the first lady, michelle obama. ab stod stoddard is with us. reading all the blogs, what will she be wearing. narrate if if you will. >> she is in combination a tom brown dress. she has a different bells on. j. crew and j. crew shoes. this will go to the national arc kifs immediately after she wears it. she looks absolutely s
obama and vice president joe biden. to you gentleman, i say, congratulations and godspeed. >>reporter: the real test whether they can come together is not today with the porch and circumstance but more likely next month with the president going back to capitol hill to deliver the state of the union address. he will have more details on immigration reform, the deficit reduction plan with sharp differences between the parties. they are talking about coming together today but there will be a lot of major policy battles in the days ahead. people have been waiting on pennsylvania av parade to come by and they cannot wait to see the president. the pomp and circumstance will carry the day for now; the policy for another day. >>shepard: i work in new york and you in washington and only today did i learn that your nickname is crazy eddie spaghetti. how did that happen? chn or here? >>reporter: i am now at fox and a colleague, a great cameramen at fox aimed me eddie spaghetti and i am glad you revealed that to the world. >>shepard: now that i know, you will be, on studio b, crazy eddie spaghett

's conversation with hardball host chris matthews. alex's take on a potential faceoff between joe biden and hillary clinton for the democratic presidential nomination in 2016. chris talks like a proud pop about his three kids and first grandchild. alex talked to him about his passion for politics. >> there's two parts of politics they find great. one is the predictable part of it. that's what i write rules about. there seems to be the politicians always get in trouble for the same things. for getting the people at home. getting too washington, getting too high hat. when they do get in trouble. the left and the right fights are predictable. incumbency is always a tricky thing. then there's the phenomenal. black president. because this one guy could do it. i don't think many other people could have done it. so we in the political commentary didn't think up barack obama. he came to us. i remember saying when i first saw him, just saw your first black president right there. it didn't take much of a genius to figure that out. you saw him and heard him. the immigrant story because of his fath
